James Marsters Shares Bizarre Story About Joss Whedon’s Reaction to Spike’s Popularity


source

James was on Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast and told a weird Joss Whedon story

He was talking about Spike's story arc and being intimidating by becoming Buffy's love interest in season five

Although still controversial, that arc had its fans. Showrunner at that time Joss Whedon did not like that:

"I came along and I wasn’t designed to be a romantic character, but then the audience reacted that way to it. And I remember he [Whedon] backed me up against a wall one day, and he was just like, ‘I don’t care how popular you are, kid, you’re dead. You hear me? Dead. Dead!’ And I was just like, ‘Uh, you know, it’s your football, man. OK.’"

[was he joking?] "No, hell no"
